The Cat Enthusiast of Zess is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, disturbing lack of elderly people, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 602 million Zessians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Capital District. The average income tax rate is 69.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Zessian economy, worth 53.8 trillion Z-coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 89,403 Z-coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prisoners can't do number twos without their "toilet buddy" present, the hardest thing for a mining operation to dig through is government red tape, all statues and paintings of dogs are being destroyed to avoid offending cat-lovers, and thalassophobia and heliophobia are on the rise. Crime is totally unknown. Zess's national animal is the neko, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zess is ranked 6,789th in the world and 212th in the South Pacific for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 79.37 Workforce Participation Rate.
